Preschool Weekly News | April 26

Please contact Principal Jessica Scanzon at jscanzon@kingsschools.org if you have any questions.

Many classrooms are continuing to study animal habitats.  Some classrooms had caterpillars in their classrooms and were able to observe the whole process from chrysalis to emerging as butterflies.  The students were then able to release these new butterflies.

Mrs. Kim and Mrs. Scanzon talked about gentleness at Chapel this week.  They taught the students that even though Jesus is powerful, like a lion, he also uses gentleness.  Mr. Hill helped illustrate that point for our students dressing as a lion yet displaying gentleness to his “cub”.

Please look below for important dates coming up.
